Jorge F. B. Pereira is Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, University of Coimbra (Portugal). He is also member and vice-Director of CIEPQPF - Chemical Process Engineering and Forest Products Research Centre at the Univ Coimbra and accredited Professor of the Graduate Program of ?Bioscience and Biotechnology applied to Pharmacy? at the São Paulo State University (UNESP). He earned is M.Sc. (2008) in Biological Engineering at the University of Minho, Portugal, and during his M.Sc. he performed a six-month internship at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the University of São Paulo, Brazil. He obtained his Ph.D. (2013) in Chemical Engineering at University of Aveiro with Prof. João A. P. Coutinho (best thesis in technologies and natural sciences of the Mário Quartin Graça scientific award). He was a postdoctoral fellow (2013-2014) at The University of Alabama, USA, with Prof. Robin D. Rogers in a joint project with the MIT/Novartis research center. From 07/2014 to 12/2019, Jorge Pereira was Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioprocesses and Biotechnology, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the São Paulo State University (UNESP). Since 2014, Jorge Pereira is leading the research team "BioPPuL - Bioproducts' Production and Purification Lab", which focus on developing sustainable biotechnological technologies for the production and purification of added-value bioproducts . Currently, Jorge Pereira has as its main research interests: -Development of ionic liquids-based technologies for the biopharmaceuticals purification, particularly using liquid-liquid extraction processes (aqueous biphasic systems); -Integration and scale-up of separation processes; -Development of biotechnological processes with emphasis on fermentation, production, isolation and purification of added-value biomolecules; -Chemical and microbiological enhanced oil recovery technologies; -Study of interactions at molecular level in ionic liquid-based separation processes.
